Message to Young Catholics on Social Justice
(CCCB – Ottawa)… In light of the International Year of Youth proclaimed by the General Assembly of the United Nations (2010-2011) and the recent World Youth Day that took place in Madrid, the Episcopal Commission for Justice and Peace of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops has issued a message of hope and encouragement to young Catholics. It invites young people to commit themselves, in the name of their faith, to building a more just and joyful society. It also thanks and congratulates youth for their generosity and perseverance as they undertake this mission in various sectors of society, especially as the new school year begins.
